After Us Review (PS5)

After Us offers a glimpse of our future and a warning of things to come.

A gaming experience where you engage in thoughtful introspection, wordless encounters, and some platforming across Earth's many diverse locations to undo the devastation caused by global warming sounds like an intriguing idea on paper. Its execution in After Us, however, leaves quite a bit to be desired. Some awkward platforming, poor combat, and performance woes will ultimately leave you feeling a little less...

Redfall is Arkane's Worst Game Ever

It's also the worst "AAA" developed title in recent memory.

It was a struggle to finish Redfall. It was an absolute struggle thanks to performance issues, technical deficiencies, crashes, broken A.I., and uninspired quest design. It was the antithesis of fun and I pushed myself to complete the game out of pure spite.

Prior to playing Redfall, I saw Arkane as a studio that could do no wrong when it comes to their output. Dark Messiah of Might and Magic in 2006...

UK Blocks Microsoft Activision Merger

The CMA claims the deal would harm cloud gaming.

Cloud gaming. Cloud gaming is the reason why the Competition and Markets Authority (CMA) in the UK voted to block the $69 billion deal that would see Microsoft taking over Activision Blizzard.

The decision didn't come down to concerns over Call of Duty exclusivity or anything that would make some measure of sense. No, it came down to the CMA being concerned that the deal would "undermine new and innovative" competition...

Report: E3 2023 is Canceled

    Subnautica Dev Fired Over Racist and Transphobic Remarks on Twitter

    Simon Chylinski is a former sound designer that worked with Unknown Worlds on the recently released Subnautica. Chylinski was fired this week after many people on social media discovered his rather vile statements and behavior on his Twitter account. Remarks that very clearly show Chylinski holds a variety of racist and transphobic tendencies.

    I noticed these past few days a number of people voicing their disdain on Twitter for tweets offered up by Chylinski in the past. Some...

    Square Enix notes that they are aware of many of these issues and promise that they will be working on the performance for the final release of the game on March 6, 2018.

    Hands On Gameplay Preview of Past Cure

    Back in January, I was offered the opportunity to try out an early build of the upcoming psychological thriller meets third-person action title, Past Cure. The build of the game I played was just two levels from the full game. At the time of the preview, the game was still very much in development at Phantom 8 Studio. Typically, when you play a game you notice that they tend to mesh all of their gameplay elements into a singular focus for the entirety of the experience. There usually isn...

  • Counter-Strike Co-Creator Deemed "A Risk to the Community" and Hit with $150K Bail

    On Friday, Counter-Strike co-creator Jess Cliffe was hit with a $150,000 bail after being booked into King County jail on Thursday. The representative for the King County Prosecuting Attorney's office, Nyoka Maraire, requested that the bail be set for $250,000. This would be for both the "community's safety and the victim's safety." The $250,000 bail was requested after it was found that Cliffe had used an adult website to contact a minor and paid for sex multiple times. During one ...

    Rockstar Games announced today that the release date for Red Dead Redemption 2 is now October 26, 2018. They also released some lovely looking new screenshots that I can only assume were taken on either the Xbox One X or a PC build of the game that "doesn't" exist. Let's just say that the image quality on display here is really damn good.

    by Shawn Zipay
    There are plenty of options to choose from.

    In case you haven't heard, Nintendo released The Legend of Zelda: Tears of the Kingdom this past week and what do you know, it's pretty damn good. That said, this month's poll is about which Legend of Zelda games you prefer more.
